Following on a few months from the previous novel Elvis is back in LA waiting for a client to walk in the door, when a client walks in the door. A hot-shot celebrity defense lawyer hires Cole to investigate a police officer who may have planted evidence against a murderer he is defending.
Reluctant to go against the police at first Cole looks into the case, finds the officer is clean and reports this back to his client. Job done, end of case. But when the client announces that his star investigator has found evidence against the police it all turns upside down. Who is framing who and why?
Among all that Elvis’s romance with Lucy, who we met in the previous novel, grows as she spends time in LA.
